Senator Oluremi Tinubu, wife of All Progressives Congress (APC) 2023 presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has promised to lend her voice to the voiceless if she becomes the country’s first lady in 2023.
She said this during a visit to Karon-Majigi Ward of Gwarimpa and Yar Goje Community of Abuja Municipal Area Council where she met with widows, Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and people with special needs.
She stated that the visit was not to campaign, but to hobnob and give support to the less privileged, letting them know that she feels their pains.
“I am here today because of the work ahead of us, you don’t just jump into the waters without learning how to swim.
“This is like a familiarisation tour to every part of Abuja, to know the people who have special needs and to see how we can ameliorate their sufferings.
“Because in a situation like this, they are more like voiceless, so we are here to see and assure them that they are not alone, and that we feel their pains.
“So at least, if God happens to get us to that exhaulted position, we don’t just go there blindly without really understanding what is in our communities and environs,” Tinubu said.
She promised to embark on more of such visits to other communities ahead of 2023 general elections in her interest to have first-hand information of what was going on in local communities.
She said this is to the end of her being able to provide the needs of the people.
The senator who represents Lagos Central highlighted the achievements of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government despite the challenges they had to go through.
She, however, said that Tinubu-Shettima presidency will consolidate on Buhari’s achievements to ensure sustainable developments for the country.
Tinubu was accompanied by the wife of Sen. Kashim Shettima, APC Vice-Presidential candidate and the party’s National Women Leader among others.
The senator distributed food items, including rice, maize, beans, cartons of noodles, vegetable oil, and condiments to the less privileged in the communities visited.
She also presented cash gift to members of the communities to share
